Google Home: The Future Is Here: If you are asked to leave your home giving the full control your beloved place to someone very strange, you might feel doubtful while making the decision. But what if the stranger is an AI-powered speaker that is effective enough to get readily grow, learn & adapt. Yes, we are talking about the all new Google Home that is now available at stores & people who have preordered also started getting their power packed deliveries & So am I, among the luckiest to get it early enough to review it for you all.
It comes with a long enough cord so placement of the Google Home is not a problem at all, built with a soft rubber, everything in it is matte, no symbols of glossy or shiny spots will be found on the device. The built-in far-field microphones reliably pick the commands given by you in even the lowest volume or while the music being played in the room. So the new Google Home is easy to get interacted with all these easy to get involved features & great sound for a living place.
Google Home: The Future Is Here:
Let’s talk about the Specific Features of the Google Home one by one:
Ask From Google Home & get it done:
Talking about the excellent designing attributes in the next point, the Home’s Assistive performance leaves us all as talking to a qualified Human Assistant. Just have to download the Google Home App & getting started. While rotating your finger clockwise one vice versa the volume levels can be easily adjusted & play/pause of the music is just a tap away with the device. Following words can be assigned to the Home to perform: Checking the calendar, setting an alarm, weather related, news, calling an Uber, calculations, adding shopping list items, Quick Google search, daily briefing of customized items & many more. You can also long press the top so as to provide a command without using the wake commands like ”ok Google” or ” Hey Google”.
I just loved the way it looks in whole Matte without many shining looks & looks sober for a perfect home. The design gives an inviting warm tone & whole the bases can be swapped to different colors it becomes more attractive. Being so small in size & very compact can be just put in a single hand palm. The whole device gives a pleasant look by the matte on the full body without any glossy spot on it. Google Home will remain invisible by silently laying down along the side of the place, without any indication but as you will try to convey something to it, the ring forming lights on the touch-sensitive control panel on the top of the unit, embedded with LED’s will start lightning up either while listening or responding.
The microphones are so perfect that they well be able to recognize the voice & commands even in a very noisy environment or when music is being played. While using I used to give commands to a different type of noisy as well as silent environments & observed that it is good at the receiver end & as well as giving excellent performance at the same time. The integrated H-Fi Excursion speaker system is another outstanding addition to the Google Home Design.
Google Home totally impresses with its clear, crystal & bass rich powerful sound. You will never have to compromise with the sound quality with the Google Home at home as it will give out the best sound clarity even in the noisy conditions. Multiple Google Home units synchronization will be the best option to be opted for playing music in a synchronous manner through out the living area.
Its one stepped move towards the artificial intelligence technology that provides answers to the questions & performs multitasks through voice commands also enables it to control the home as well as the vast collection of supported smart home devices like the very latest by Google i.e. Google Chrome cast, Nest & many more devices.
Setup & Connectivity Made Easy:
The Google Home units offer connectivity through networking so as to be always available for instant recognition & perform accordingly. This is the main reason behind the nonavailability of any type of Bluetooth connectivity with the device. The device will perform best providing excellent music synchronization when connected through Wi-Fi networking. Although it is meant to be stationary & the same is shown up by its tethered plug to its power source.
Placement for the Google Home is, however, most important & as you know it has to remain plugged in & can’t be hidden in any way. The connecting cord offered with the device is almost 5.5 feets long which is made up of soft rubber & attachment through a cable tie is also provided for better management. The initial setup will include connecting your mobile device to a temporary Wi-Fi hotspot on your Google Home followed by a sound play test to confirm the connectivity & finally providing a name for the identification of the device in Google Home App. Whole of the setup can be configured in almost 5 minutes which includes setting up the Chromecast Audio & Google Assistant in a series.
Price & Availability:
Although it was made available online earlier & many of us have also received the package those who have pre-ordered it online & is available in stores now. I will be costing about $129 for a single unit. It is available with a free 6-Months trial to You tube Red.
